Canon G12 & Swarovksi DCA combo

Has anyone successfully used the Canon G12 with the Canon filter thread adapter (FA-DC58B) and the Swarovski DCA adapter?

I hear rumours that it is not possible but as yet have not found out why.

Many thanks for any info.

Dave.

What? Mechanical placement is for you to determine with your specific equipment, not for someone to tell you. Take a minute and find out. Gene

Good try Gene....

I don't own either but am trying to find out for a friend before they make a 350+ purchase of a camera that they cannot use with their 'scope and adapter.

from what i know, g12 should be a bad choice for digiscoping, i got g11 and just use it for family and backup.

Thanks KK, I'll suggest they look elsewhere.
